Whiter Shade of Pale PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Whiter Shade of Pale free pdf If you thought you had white people pegged as Oscar-party-throwing, Sunday New York Times-reading, self-satisfied latte lovers - you were right. But if you thought diversity was just for other races, then hang on to your eco-friendly tote bags. Author and veteran white person Christian Lander is back with fascinating new information and advice for dealing with the Caucasian population. Sure, their indie-band T-shirts, trendy politics, vegan diets, and pop-culture references make them all seem the same. But a closer look reveals that from Austin to Australia, from LA to the UK, indigenous white people are as different from one another as skim milk is different from full-fat. Where do skinny jeans and bulky sweaters rule? Where is down-market beer the nectar of the hip? What are the capitals of vintage board games, Vespa scooters, Birkenstocks and Frisbee sports? If you want to know the places cute girls with fringes and cool guys with beards roam and emo musicians and unpaid interns call home, you'd better switch off the Adult Swim reruns, put down that copy of The Onion, pick up this book, and prepare to see white.
